The Alleged Yet Unproven Lyme Biofilm Healing Crisis cont.

The list of questionable practitioners, device and supplement pushers jumping on the latest "Hot Topic" in LymeLand to market and re-purpose their services and products for the alleged-but-not-yet-proven biofilm healing crisis swells.

There are now dozens of completely unrelated alternative "treatments" being marketed to patients as "biofilm busters." Some are Lyme disease quack cure du jours of the past resurfacing (rife, MMS, EDTA chelation, magic bullet herbs) to take advantage of the opportunity in a new marketing angle.

This thread is a continuation of the earlier thread "Biofilms: The New Lyme-Toxin Myth": viewtopic.php?f=6&t=2602, with information about Envita Clinics biofilm stripping protocol.

It's worth taking a separate look at who exactly is participating in promoting the hype of unsubstantiated and outright false claims in preying on the fears and desperation of Lyme disease patients for their own personal profit and gain.

From GoodByeLyme Library - For Getting Rid of Incredibly Persistent Lyme Disease, associated with the Two Frogs Healing Center which targets Lyme patients offering "a comprehensive eight week treatment package" which, besides targeting the alleged biofilm healing crisis, includes a Lemonade Cleanse protocol:

Cutting Through the Lyme Biofilm – GoodbyeLyme Library

Welcome to the biofilm section of the GoodbyeLyme Library.

The Lyme bacteria are able to work cooperatively to produce a shield to protect themselves. This shield is a sticky covering that is called a biofilm. Most medications and herbs have a difficult time penetrating this shield. The Lyme bacteria and their co-infections are believed to be able to hide under this gooey biofilm until it is safe to re-emerge and re-infect you all over again.

However, there are some medicines that can cut though the biofilm and allow other anti-Lyme medicines to kill off hidden bacteria. Here are several medicines that are used to break open the Lyme biofilm.

2) How to Prevent Recurring Lyme Fatigue by Cutting through the Biofilm

3) How to Keep Recurring Lyme Symptoms Away with These Biofilm-Busting Herbs

Here's more about their "comprehensive eight week treatment package" for Lyme disease and co-infections:

Goodbye Lyme Treatment Program

The Goodbye Lyme Treatment Program is a comprehensive eight week treatment package for getting rid of chronic Lyme disease pain, fatigue, and mental fog. This program also addresses co-infections like Babesia, Bartonella, and Erlichia.

Treatments and strategies for resolving chronic Lyme symptoms

In this package, you receive eight treatments once a week that address your specific symptoms and concerns. These treatments help you eliminate your chronic Lyme symptoms through the following strategies:

- Anti-Lyme herbs for killing off the bacteria and co-infections

- Acupuncture and anti-toxin herbs for reducing flare ups of Herxheimer symptoms

- Herbs that carry anti-Lyme medicines into the nervous system and joints

- Anti-biofilm herbs for killing bacteria that are hiding beneath the biofilm shield

- Immune enhancing herbs and acupuncture to help you fight off infections

- Dietary recommendations for reducing fatigue and clearing brain fog

- Acupuncture and craniosacral treatments for relieving chronic pain and fatigue

- Ionic detox foot baths for eliminating toxins

- Sufi healing and craniosacral treatments for enhancing memory and mental focus

NOTE: Greg Lee, founder of this healing center geared towards Lyme patients is not a medical doctor, nor are others on the staff that I could gather from their web sites, but fear not:

Greg Lee:

I stopped trying to be the expert healer and started guiding others to profoundly transform and grow through receiving from a Higher Source.

Biofilms and Lyme disease

Summation: Biofilms of Borrelia Burgdorferi by Alan B. MacDonald, MD, May 17, 2008
http://www.molecularalzheimer.org/files ... -Only_.pdf
1) Biofilms of Borrelia are indispensable elements for species survival in hostile environments.
2) Biofilms of borrelia provide protection to the microbes which live inside of the matrix.
3) DNA of Borrelia (externalized) constitutes a portion of the borrelia biofilm matrix.
4) Exchange of genomic material occurs between the borrelia in the biofilm.
5) Morphologic diversity of borrelia within biofilms (cyst, granular, L form, and spiral forms) is
evident.

Biofilms has become one of the hottest topics within the Lyme communities. Doctors from all parts of the world are focusing on biofilms and how it effects treatments of chronically ill patients, as well as Lyme patients. Pathogens and toxins we are carrying in our bodies prevent us from beginning the dissolving process. We must begin a process to help dissolve these pathogens and toxins that are helping to keep the biofilms in place.

I have been using several things to break down the biofilms, which are residing in my body.
I’m having great results using the ACS200ppm silver, the ACZnano Zeolite ( I have graduated to the new Zeo-Gold) and BioEnergy-C, as well as Wobenzyme. Lymies are known to have thick blood and I have found that taking one to three Boluoke a day, (my uploading dosage was much more), then taking 8-10 Wobenzyme about 15 minutes after I take the Boluoke helps to address the thick blood but the biofilms that reside in my body. Both the Wobenzyme and Boluoke must be taken on empty stomach. Elements of biofilm are calcium, magnesium and iron and these must be dismantled before you can begin the dissolving process. However, the combination of several products have helped me to begin the process.

From "Alkalize for Health": MMS


Sodium Chlorite (Miracle Mineral Supplement)

When taken as directed, Sodium Chlorite is converted in the body to chlorine dioxide which destroys bacteria, viruses, fungi and parasites. It has been reported to be useful for malaria, some forms of arthritis, Lyme disease, some dental infections (brush your teeth and gums with it), all strains of hepatitis, herpes, AIDS, cancer, leukemia, asthma, arteriosclerosis, lupus, flu, colds, pneumonia. In fact, it is worth trying for every disease and as part of a regular health maintenance and longevity program. Read about it Part 1, Part 2 and watch the DVD. Many pathogens will hide beneath a biofilm. Chlorine dioxide is reported to break up biofilms throughout the body, thereby exposing pathogens hiding beneath biofilm to attack from the immune system.

For a daily "maintenance" dose, our preference is to take a few drops of sodium chlorite with water first thing in the morning on an empty stomach. The taste is OK and stomach acid will activate it.

http://www.alkalizeforhealth.net/freshjuices.htm


It's a miracle. Buy some today! Save over $30,000 compared to Envita Clinics biofilm protocol and BONUS! MMS comes without the inconvenience of travel and a two month stay in Arizona :mrgreen:

From Lyme disease blogger, author and internet entrepreneur Jenna Smith whose Lyme disease articles include such gems as "Can Salt and Apples Cure Lyme Disease?" which introduces a new protocol that's a twist on the already inane Salt/Vitamin C protocol; and "Fight Chronic Lyme Disease With Balanced pH". (This article really has to be read to be believed (warning to Rita): http://ezinearticles.com/?Fight-Chronic ... id=1633142).

Notably on the topic of biofilms, Jenna warns her advertiser's potential customers to avoid skepticism or other sources of information that would challenge this hype and misinformation when buying into the alleged biofilm healing crisis and need for these products to treat an unproven, unsubstantiated condition:

Jenna writes:

...there have been comments in various groups, forums and in some websites (that focus on their own particular protocol exclusively - which is understandable) about the LACK of importance regarding the breaking down of the biofilms - but to avoid confusion please read the three part blog series written at the end of last month.

The “Lyme Enzymes” are different than the “Systemic Enzymes” that some may have tried in the past years - or even recently - with no results.

If you didn’t get a chance to read the earlier posts, you can find the “Lyme Enzyme Biofilm Busters” here:

Lumbrokinase

Nattokinase

Serrapeptase


Lyme bacteria is known to hide inside these biofilms, and will cause chronic illness unless they are dissolved. There are many other nasty biofilms that can cause symptoms that are similar to Lyme so it is critical for us to destroy every hiding place possible if we want to get better.

I have also learned about several new discoveries and protocols that you will find very exciting - more to come soon!

Blessings,

Jenna

http://www.lymediseaseresource.com/word ... -protocol/


And in another post:

Jenna writes:

In neurological Lyme disease, the biofilm is believed to be constructed of actual bits and pieces of our myelin sheath which covers and protects our actual nerves that make up our central nervous system. So when the immune system calls for killer cells to destroy the invaders, our immune system can actually attack our central nervous system trying to break through the biofilm and destroy the infection which they cannot do.

http://www.lymediseaseresource.com/word ... -part-one/


I ask again, where is the data, peer-reviewed studies and credible references for any of this?

Yeah, if I could force myself to read to the end of this nonsense, my 'fish tank' would explode spewing all those fishies, fish water, pHies and biofilms everywhere. Then I couldn't try the salt & apple protocol, could I? That's next on my list. Damn. But I wouldn't have to worry about biofilms anymore.....

JHC, let's come up with some 'cures' that at least taste good. Why not a 'cure-of-the- month' deal? Then you won't get bored & testy. For October, let's do something with pumpkin & whipped cream. For November, why not gravy and biscuits and cranberry sauce (balances the pH). For December....hell, let's just dump some sherry into the 'fish tank'.


-------------------------

....Does every field have to put up with this crap? Do engineers constantly have to argue with people who BELIEVE, in the face of all testable evidence that bridges and highrises could actually be built from toothpicks and cream cheese if only the engineers were more open-minded and better informed?

Rita,

I like your idea. August could be strawberry shortcake month. Hopefully that's alkaline.

If you had been able to get through the whole article you would have learned from Jenna, prior to this recent biofilm healing crisis, that the unbalanced acidic body terrain healing crisis was the cause of chronic infection and illness.

The silver lining in all of this for me is that 'detoxing' the 'Lyme bug toxins' healing crisis has been given a rest.

From Dr. Marcus Ettinger "Doctor of Chiropractic and 21st Century Medical Detective:"

Dr. Ettinger’s Biofilm Protocol for Lyme and Gut Pathogens

A specific question has been asked a lot lately, as to what is my protocol for handling Biofilms. Most of these questions have been directed to me by people diagnosed with or think they may have, Lyme disease.

[SNIP]

Dr. Marcus Ettinger Biofilm Protocol – Only the eradication phase is presented here. There is a pre, post and toxin reduction step as well. I will add these soon.

Monolaurin (lauric acid) 600mg’s 2 caps 2x per day
Nutiva Extra-Virgin Coconut Oil (almost 50% lauric acid by volume) 1-3 tablespoons per day
Nattokinase (a potent fibrinolytic enzyme) 100mg’s 1-3 times per day
InterFase Plus™ (broad-spectrum enzyme formula w/EDTA) 2 caps 3x/day on an empty stomach

Drats! Can't escape those toxins.

FYI

Greg Lee of Two Frogs was persistent on Lymefriends and his followers insisted he was only trying to help--when it became apparent he was really trying to drum up business, he was finally pursuaded to leave

He went so far as to host UOS a few times to draw the crowds to him!! clever guy especially since his background is in marketing and business. Prior to that he was a NASA software specialist, robotics engineer,took classes in accupuncture and chinese herbs. The school is supposedly accredited but by which agency and the depth of classes we never were able to find out!! BUT its apparently his SUFI training that he relies upon. He has been sighted giving free lectures to again draw "customers" to his place.And plying his advice on many other Lyme sites as well.

IMO, Rosner will glom onto anything that will give him a free ride to credibility and his latest train?? ILADS notices.
He is now affixing/imbedding his publishing company's latest books into ILADS announcements and when I questioned ILADS they claim no permission nor prior knowledge. However when I suggested they immediately have him cease and desist lest others assume he is supported and promoted by ILADS, they declined, saying that theyd try to see what they can do "in the future" about this sort of thing.

So when ILADS condones this unethical behavior by tacit approval what can we expect in the way of any accountability??

its all marketing--reformulating the latest hype...why bother to have valid data?? why even bother to make sure the claims are even possible??

Vibrate your Lyme disease bacteria and biofilms to death with a rife machine, and buy Bryan Rosner's books to learn more:

Biofilms and Lyme Disease?
By Bryan Rosner on Oct 15, 2009 in Research

Every year, there is a new buzzword in the Lyme disease community. For a year or two, everyone focuses on the buzzword, and researchers and physicians are in a frenzy to find new treatments for the buzzword. Supplement companies go banannas making money on the buzzword.

In 2009, the buzzword is “biofilms.” I’m not exactly sure how much biofilms really have to do with Lyme disease, and how much of it is just ”the word of the year buzz.” I’ll leave that to the experts to decide. But, one of the interesting factors when it comes to biofilms, and the reason I’m even writing about it, is that this buzzword may be a clue as to why rife machines may work to treat Lyme disease.

It used to be thought that rife therapy just vibrated bacteria to death. Now, however, it appears that rife may also be acting on bacterial biofilms. This is not my opinion; there are numerous studies concluding this. In fact, the word “biofilm” is actually used in the studies showing that EMF disrupts biofilms. They use this technology in sewage and agricultural purification; a technology similar to rife therapy...

ummm...paint me confused--he disses the use of buzzword "biofilm" and then uses it himself for the latest morphed "explanation how Rife works"

hypocritical, much??

let alone the ever changing
" rife only attacks bad cells"...
"no, wait, it attacks certain charged cells"...
"no wait, it vibrates (only) bad cells to death"...
"no wait, it breaks biofilms ( and dont trouble your pretty little heads over the actual existence of these biofilms--we "know" theyre there, and we "know" that theyre bad) and we also "know thats the way Rife is working"....
" for now"..........................

AND while we are at it, 'buy my books'
